Joanna Lumley and June Whitfield

In an age of instant celebrity, this programme explores what it takes to maintain a long career in entertainment.

June Whitfield is one of our best-known faces and most widely loved stars. She has recently turned 90-years-old and it's an ideal opportunity for BBC Radio 4 to wish her a happy birthday and toast her long, successful career - a career which is still going.

Joanna Lumley visited June at home in Wimbledon to re-live some of her finest comedy moments and explore how the entertainment industry has changed - most notably the expanded roles for women as performers, writers and producers - during her remarkable career.

Radio has been vital to June's success, but it was TV that brought her to the hearts of millions. Joanna Lumley, a co-star with June in Absolutely Fabulous, listens back to some selected gems from the archives and discusses the highs and lows of her time in the entertainment business.
